The State Department of Transportation has raised the speed limit on I-41 to 70 MPH for most of Brown County. 

The only exception is between Lombardi Avenue and Lineville Road which will remain at 55 MPH due to ongoing construction.

The increase is possible due to the completion of major construction of I-41 and interchanges as part of the I-41 Project. Crews began work in 2010 and finished on time and under budget. The remaining work on the I-41 Project will included landscaping, staining, local road repairs and clean-up work in early 2017.
